About this listing

Vintage apartment with a modern touch, on one of Lisbon's seven hills, in a quiet area of central Lisbon, within waking distance of downtown, Chiado, lookout sites (São Jorge Castle, Torel, São Pedro de Alcântara, Graça), trams (25, 28) and funiculars (Glória, Lavra, Santa Justa).

The space

A blend of vintage-era design and furniture with the comforts of contemporary living, the apartment, located on the Santana hill, in a beautifully preserved traditional Lisbon building, recreates the contrast of old and new that characterizes the experience of Lisbon on the whole. This first-floor, 85 square-meter apartment features two bedrooms, one with a 5-square-meter walk-in closet, and an ample living/dining space, articulated with an American-style kitchen, that encourages our guests to continue to share their travel experience with each other during their stay. The apartment has just been completely renovated.

The fully equipped kitchen, with brand new appliances, includes a high capacity washing/drying machine, a dishwasher, a glass-ceramic stove, an electric oven, a microwave oven, a fridge-freezer, an expresso coffee machine, an electric kettle, an electric hand blender, a toaster, a sandwich press, napkins, paper towels, organic clothes detergent and fabric softener, dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid, organic Portuguese olive oil and balsamic vinegar, unrefined organic Portuguese seasalt, a wide variety of teas (including organic Portuguese tea from the Azores), unrefined fair-trade organic sugar, a range of cooking spices, different cleaning materials (anti-bacterial wipes, sponge, drying cloths, dustpan, broom, mop and bucket, trash bags, etc.), and a recycling bin.

The apartment also features high speed Wi-Fi, a 32´ Sony LCD TV with free access to many international and kids channels, an iron and ironing board, a hair dryer, high quality bed linens (100% cotton), full sets of 100% cotton towels, hypoallergenic duvets (winter & summer) and pillows (soft and medium), extra blankets, organic liquid hand soap, and toilet paper.

All children under 3 years old stay free of charge. Child's cot/crib, baby bath, potty, high chair, little chair, children's books in 4 different languages, toys and games are available for free upon request. For children aged 3 and over, please book them as extra guests. We can also provide babysitting services upon request, depending on availability.

The apartment is located in a residential building, and we thus ask for noise levels to be kept within reasonable limits, particularly between 10:00 pm and 8:00 am. We also ask that you treat the apartment and its furnishings with care and respect, as if they were your own.

Check in is between 3:00 pm and 10:00 pm. Check out must done by 11 am. We can be flexible with these timings on request, provided they do not conflict with other bookings.

For stays of two weeks or longer, we offer a mid-stay cleaning with changing of towels and linens.

Smoking is not allowed in the apartment.

Though we love animals (and have two cats and a dog ourselves), this apartment is not prepared to receive pets.

The apartment is great. It is conviently located near the metro and walking distance to Alfama, Baixa neighborhood. The kitchen is fabulous for our family of 5. After traveling for 16 days all around Portugal and eating out, it was very nice to have a well equipped kitchen for making meals. Elsa made sure that you have all that you need to make her apartment your temporary Lisbon home.

Elsa's place looked exactly as shown in the pictures, and, as guests, we could not have been more happy with our stay. Upon check-in, she provided a quick walkthrough of the space, followed by an extremely useful review of the neighborhood's best restaurants, directions to the nearest grocery store, how to get around Lisbon on the Metro, and many other helpful tidbits. During our stay, Elsa kept in communication to ensure we had everything we need and was extremely prompt in response when we reached out with questions. We received help loading and unloading luggage, and she and her husband Jeff consistently went above and beyond throughout our stay. In addition to a great space and great owners, the neighborhood served as an ideal base for exploring the city. We were a short walk from the Green metro line and 28 tram, and within five minutes of several strong eating options, a handy grocery store, and a wonderful ice cream shop.

I am a Portuguese mother of two boys and a researcher in film studies and literature who loves animals, spending time with family and friends, travelling, laughing and defending educational, cultural, social, ethical and environmental causes. My husband (an American literature professor who fell so in love with Portugal 25 years ago that he decided to make it his home) and I have lived in Lisbon for more than two decades and love sharing our enthusiasm for this amazing city with family, friends and guests from all over the world.
